Art for the Soul

Art for the Soul

 

The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) at St. James’ Episcopal Church began a new ministry in May 2017, Art for the Soul. Each month different artists have their work displayed in Fowler Hall, including paintings, photography, and other forms of art, such as pottery, jewelry and mosaics. This program allows the artist to showcase and sell art to the members of St. James’ as well as others who attend various programs throughout the month. The proceeds from Art for the Soul go to support outreach ministries. Please come visit our display in Fowler Hall. Purchases can be made by contacting DOK at dok.st.jamesjxn@gmail.com or by calling Cathy Richardson at 601-572-5096 about making a purchase in November.

MARY MARGARET HICKMAN

Mary Margaret HickmanMary Margaret Hickman has been interested in mandalas for years. She finally realized her dream of designing them after she retired from teaching twelve years ago. Carl Jung called a mandala ” a sacred circle” making mandala design a peaceful, meditative art form. One can see the symmetry and balance of a mandala in a flower, beautiful stained glass windows, even in a pizza!

Mary Margaret has taught several mandala workshops and has exhibited her art at juried shows at The Cedars in Jackson and Southside Gallery in Oxford. You can see more of her art at Madison Marketplace.
